In spite of some extremely fishy election wrangling, Gov. Siegelman of Alabama is dropping his request for a recount, claiming he wants to do "what's best for the state."
I don't want leaders who do "what's best for the state." I want leaders who do what's right. And I happen to believe that counting every vote, and making sure election returns are accurate, is what's right.
Moving us one step closer to a one-party system...
And just for the record, for me this isn't a Republican-Democrat issue. It's a right-and-wrong issue. If one party is so bought into what the other party says that it rolls over in the name of "what's best for the nation," then for all practical intents and purposes we only have one party.
